Zoe Bios Creative was founded in Silver Lake, California in 2011.

Zoe Bios Creative has coined the term ‘ArtEntouré’ to express a full circle cross-pollination of the art world with the design world. “Our fusion of art and design inspires a vitality of meaning in the everyday, hopefully provoking a higher consciousness in the way we live with, and make use of objects.”

ZBC’s is also a traverse across cultures, understanding how the relativity of meaning thrives along side the persistent universality of beauty. “We focus on the visual organization of new forms—chance arrangements and purposeful compositions. We want to inspire unconventional thinking, and creative design solutions while maintaining a mindful attention to beauty and contentment in every object that we offer…we are artists, curators, and collaborators.”

Uncontrollable Beauty: Perfection, Coherence, and Unity of Form and Content

ZBC House Collection

By: DG

“In a circle, a very tiny break or dent will arouse our attention.” - Uncontrollable Beauty -  Meyer Schapiro

Perfection is defined by what one perceives to have attained an accuracy and rightness, leaving the greater whole unchanged. Realistically, we only see fragments of this at a time and upon second look, we may see more.  Many great works have been considered incomplete such as with the Chartres Cathedral, the Sistine Chapel or the writings of Shakespeare and Tolstoy. These works are full of imperfections, and often a work-in-progress, where additions were made later in time. It is the power of these pieces where we feel satiated despite found imperfections. Coherence in a work is yet again defined by perception and the norms of style "justified in practice". What may seem incoherent and incomplete at one point will stylistically be distinguished over time as finely coherent as with many works from the past. Unity of form and content is thusly an additional perception seen through meanings that embrace the subjects, connotations, and connections between otherwise isolated elements of representation. Ultimately, to see a work as a whole, one must be aware of the incompleteness of perception – to see the work from part to part, enriching the whole in successive perceptions.
